A Nice but small art museum

This is a very nice but small art museum with some great exhibits and a wonderful view of Long Beach and the great Pacific Ocean. A very nice stop

It is very relaxing to stroll through this museum. It's is small and "current" exhibits tend to "take over", but it's "our" museum and we are proud of it. The "attached" Clair's is a great place for lunch and Happy Hour on Thursdays. Check their schedule.

We've been to this museum before, and were just a little disappointed that there wasn't too much new, but we always enjoy it.

Give the curator and staff credit for working hard to find exhibitions which fit their limited space and are worth viewing. Check website or local paper to see what's on offer before visit.

The location is a primary reason that this museum gets used for weddings constantly. It overlooks the water and has a nice feel to it. But as for the artwork, there isn't much!

This place was awesome. The area was PERFECT for a wedding reception. The beach behind the building made an amazing backdrop. The staff was wonderful, and parking wasn't too bad either!

This is a really nice small museum with a variety of changing shows that are well curated. Claire's restaurant is open for Sunday brunch and one night a week. Its on a gorgeous patio with a fantastic view and the food is excellent. A lovely Sunday afternoon and interesting any day for the shows.

We were visiting friends who live nearby and toured the museum with them. The museum seems to have grown from a historic house which is now the restaurant (Claire's Café). A modern building sits beside which contains most of the exhibits. This building is three stories. The exhibits are contemporary. The basement level is the family and children's gallery. The...
